On June 1st, CNN posted an article on Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis cop who killed George Floyd.
It was entitled: “What we know about the former officer charged in George Floyd’s death”
As I was completing that first sentence, a thought entered my head to continue it: “the cop who killed George Floyd, and started all this mess we’re currently in.”
Then I stopped and thought – no he didn’t. The ones who started it are leftists in the media, race pimps and Antifa anarchists, whose goal, among other things, “is to rid America of ‘whiteness.’”
Let me amend that. The ones who started our nation’s latest bite at the race-riot apple are just leftists. Whether in media or not – whether they are black or white or pink with purple polka-dots makes no difference. If you’re a leftist you have been conditioned to see difference rather than commonality.
All that was seen was a white cop murdering a black man. If this were a white man named Floyd, would there be any outcry? Probably not. The left sees what it wants and forms a conclusion from that single snapshot.
Now make no mistake – regardless of Floyd’s color and underlying health conditions, this was murder. I’ll leave it to the justice system to decide what degree.
But from this incident, the only conclusion the left can jump to is racism. Without a shadow of a doubt, there is no other motivation possible.
So they have their conclusion – Chauvin is a vile racist. Then like good leftists they must now prove what they’ve already concluded. It’s how all junk science is proven.
It’s how Trump–Russia began in the press. We know he’s guilty of something – how climate change has been handled – we know humans, especially Americans, are causing the climate to warm – now we just need to prove it. It’s completely ass-backwards.
So the leftist press set out to prove that former officer Chauvin is the racist they know he is.
But something happened on the way.
As CNN researched Chauvin, they discovered that they couldn’t find the flaming racist they thought they would. They have, thus far, been unable to determine, to prove, what they’ve already concluded.
Therefore, I suspect he is not. There’s not a hint of them even implying that Chauvin is a racist. And you get bet your last dollar that these folks have been digging as frantically as grave robbers to find something race-related on Chauvin.
The LA Times also did an in-depth search of Chauvin and found 17 complaints against him. I didn’t even bother to look, but I know that not one was race related.
Well that sounds rather counterintuitive, you might say. How can I possibly know this without even looking at any of the complaints?
Easy – motivation. Those in the main-stream press are also radical leftists. They see only skin color and they have a suspicion of, even a hatred for the police. And by combining the two, we have the perfect storm.
If there was even a subtle hint that Chauvin was a racist, or ever spoke ill of a person of color, that would have been the lead and the entirety of each article.
Therefore, I conclude, that at least so far, former police officer Derek Chauvin, is not a racist, and that race had little to nothing to do with him killing Floyd.
However, he is most likely an equal opportunity bully and a dirtbag.
